Holiday Coffee Drinks

It’s holiday time and the usual suspects, holiday coffee drinks loaded with fat a calories, are ready and waiting. I know, I can hear you from here saying, “I was so good all year, can’t I treat myself?” Sure you can, but know the facts first. Armed with the facts, depending on your current goals, you may decide this treat is really not worth it. First up, Starbucks.

We don’t want Starbucks to think we are picking on them, so let’s move on to some of the other popular chains.

A yearly treat? Sure. Just don’t make it a habit. In most any coffee shop all drinks can be made skinny by choosing skim milk, light syrups, smaller sizes and skipping the whipped cream. The choice is yours.
